Having made no headway in resolving the longstanding Munak Canal imbroglio, the Delhi Government has written to the Cabinet Secretariat to call for a meeting by the Group of Ministers headed by Union Finance Minister P. Chidambaram to put an end to the dispute.

Delhi and Haryana have been sparring over release of additional water for Delhi through the Munak Canal. Delhi claims that as per the Memorandum of Understanding signed by the two States, Delhi stands to get an additional 80 MGD of water over and above the quantum that it receives. Haryana on the other hand has been contesting this claim and maintains that 80 MGD is part of the quantum that Delhi receives.
